On Tuesday 19 March 2013, the eve of the budget, the Bring Back EMA campaign are organising a Bring Back EMA National Day of Action.
 
Already 56 MPs have signed up to the Early Day Motion calling on the government to restore EMA, as a result of our incredibly successful national week of action, which involved hundreds of students and over 18 campuses. Check out the report from the last week of action here: http://www.bringbackema.org.uk/2/post/2013/03/bring-back-ema-week-of-action-report.html and the list of MPs signed up here: http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2012-13/1067
 
We are calling on campuses across the country to join us in a national day of action to gather more support for the Early Day Motion by lobbying MPs and also putting pressure on George Osborne to do a u-turn and give us back our EMA.
 
The following 24 campuses  have already signed up to join the National Day of Action:

 
· Worcester College of Technology
· Dudley College
· Birmingham South and City College
· Central St Martin's College of Art and Design
· Stourbridge College
· Sandwell College
· Gateshead College
· Lancaster & Morecambe College
· Camberwell College of Art and Design
· Midkent College
· Sunderland College
· Hull College
· West Thames College 
· Sheffield College
· Goldsmiths College
· SOAS
· Birmingham University
· Manchester University 
· LSE
· London Met University 
· Hertfordshire University 
· Kent University 
· Bidgewater College
· University of Sussex
  
We want as many students to get involved in this day of action as possible! Sign up your Students’ Union or anti-cuts group to the Bring Back EMA National Day of Action by contacting Matt Stanley, co-founder of the campaign, on
info@bringbackema.org.uk and let us know what you have planned!
 
Things you could organise on the day include:
 
· Do a ‘Bring Back EMA’ banner drop
· Encourage students to send an email to their MP by using this lobby tool which finds your MP for you and includes a model letter
: http://act.bringbackema.org.uk/lobby/11
· Organise a stall with a petition or model letters to lobby your MPS to sign up to the early Day Motion
it they have not done so already
· Organise a photo petition, where you go around your campus with a camera and a ‘I say Bring Back EMA’ sign and take photos of students that support the campaign to upload on the internet and tweet at your MP
 
This is by no means an exhaustive list of what you can do on the day –get creative and join in the action!
